This review is from: Stockholm 1970 (Audio CD)
I bought the main part of this set years ago on vinyl when it was entitled Scandinavian Nights and again on CD as Live In Stockholm so it's a bit of a disappointment to see this reissued yet again albeit with a few extras added on. The same thing happened with the Live in Copenhagen CD which is just Live In Denmark with a couple of extra tracks. There's absolutely nothing wrong with the performances they're all excellent, those that I've heard, in fact they're some of my favourite renditions of these tracks. If you haven't got the earlier issues of these concerts then this is probably the version to buy. Purple never failed to produce exciting live performances back then, they knock spots of the releases from recent concerts. All in all good value for money but not if you already own most of it. Is this the band or the record companies cashing in on the fans loyalty?
